Mania. Four month manic episode!

classic manic episode

This was back in 1989 when I was 24, which was 26 years before I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I woke up one morning and I had a brilliant idea. Why not buy 2 jet-skis, move to Spain, and hire them out on a beach!. At the time, I didn’t have a pot to piss in, so I took out a £20,000 loan 😱😂

All my family and friends tried to talk me out of it, and said this was a bad idea, and I wasn’t thinking straight (what the fuck is thinking straight lol) I wasn’t having non of it. I thought..”what’s the matter with everyone, this is a brilliant idea!”. So I sold my car and bought a land-rover, plus 2 top of the range jet-skis with a double trailer, 2 banana boats, and 10 life jackets!

Within 2 weeks of having this brilliant idea, I was laying on a beach in a resort on the Costa Brava. This lasted for around 4 months, before I had a major come down, and returned home. Wow! What a great time I had.

It wasn’t until my bipolar diagnosis, that I realised this was a “manic episode”. I don’t regret it in the slightest. If I had listened to everyone that said it’s a bad idea, I would be sitting here now, thinking…”why the fuck did I listen to them, I wish I’d done that while I had the chance! “Life’s too short” 😁👍

  1. Yeah it must take a while to build it up. I start thinking my page is slow, but I’ve only been blogging for just over a week. That’s part of being bipolar I suppose, I want everything to happen there and then! 😂👍
